11:05 am
a lawyer things have gone on so you knows about it their fees wanted to answer for his own actions in libya's drawn out battle for control and it's what he could reveal about the diplomatic deals with his father is keeping the western power players sweating other than it are to london. live in resident ali al kasey for the city of sirte days before colonel gadhafi was killed there and he claims nato has committed atrocities during its intervention which only helped to destabilize his country. they used every possible think through to make this so called the revolution successful they used gunships. helicopters they used fighters all sorts of weapons. disposal so they can. make this successful
11:06 am
kill so many people through to succeed in this operation moshtarak i don't think it's a success because if it was a success every libyan would have been so happy about it i doubt very much there's a big divide in libya there's a huge. between libyans. i mean parts or partially because of. their feelings and partly because of let's be honest and say partially because of gadhafi. but but the way they killed gadhafi the way they treated him the way they bombed my city you. have a lot of civilians inside it who were killed as well i mean this just. generates anger and generates revenge. which
11:07 am
which is in the future would be the fuel of another war in libya which i think it will be sooner or later. nato winds up its intervention in libya it's leaving behind a country full of weapons in the hands of people with a shady past to stay with r.t. for a special report on the ground in an hour's time as reveal how some former rebel commanders have no clue how to tackle the crime problem. syria's president is warning western nations that intervening in his country will cause an earthquake that will tear the middle east but shall messiah told britain's sunday telegraph newspaper that international involvement. turn his country into another afghanistan his comrades follow the un she's made us call for the repressions to end after we can play a record of fifty lives there are readers also weighing in with strong criticism and we're going to syrian officials later on sunday the u.n. believes more than three thousand people have perished and the rest since march but this is a syrian writer and democracy campaigner michel kilo base most people there don't
11:08 am
want a military solution to the crisis. we're against military intervention whether it's a date tomorrow or in ten years' time even if the regime is to deny late every one of us would still be against military intervention we fight for freedom and we don't want to add external slavery to our domestic law we don't want it to become a part of the struggle between the international and internal forces syrians are peaceful they want to progress under conditions of freedom and development and they don't want to turn into a concentration camp a political philology country and brian becker from the u.s. based antiwar coalition answer believes that unlike libya syria is too strong for the alliance to intervene and that's why the west wants a spark a civil war to bring about regime change. we're using the same lingo the same scenario the syrian opposition is borrowing a page from the playbook for libya they know that they can come to power only with
11:09 am
the advance with the support with the intervention through multiple means of the nato powers of the western powers and i think what we can tell the syrian people is look at what happened in libya the issue of a no fly zone sounds like a way to defend civilians but it's really a way to begin the war to begin military operations against the syrian air force or air defenses and i think the first step and this is the plan of the obama administration is not direct military intervention but to promote a civil war inside of syria i think they realize that the syrian government is substantially stronger militarily and within the arab world as compared to khadafi but they can use the human beings who have grievances valid or not to be the human materiel for a civil war and i think the u.s. government officials signaling the syrian opposition and the syrian president that
11:10 am
they should learn the lesson of libya is a clear message begin the civil war they want to weaken syria first as a as a prelude to a more direct intervention for regime change. and still to come this hour an r t another outbreak of violence in the middle east were reported how a deadly exchange of fire between israel and gaza has overshadowed a peaceful balance protests that government spending and i love the. scores of demonstrators supporting the occupy wall street movement have been arrested across the u.s. overnight right police in denver moved in detaining activists who refused to leave their camp earlier police used pepper spray to disperse the crowds meanwhile at least thirty people were arrested in the states of oregon tennessee and california after police rams into force curfews moving protesters belongings now it was nature threatening demas in new york after the city was hit by a unseasonal snow blizzard over the activists say they're ready to withstand harsh
